Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan A Trombley, AAS, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: The fourth edition of this medical terminology book continues to be an outstanding resource for healthcare personnel and students alike.
Purpose: This book continues its high standards. Although not specifically stated, the purpose is to educate students entering healthcare-related programs, healthcare practitioners, and lay persons in medical terminology.
Audience: It is designed for students entering a healthcare program, practitioners returning to a medical career after an extended absence, volunteers for Red Cross or a hospice, and a myriad of healthcare professionals as well as lay persons.
Features: The programmed-learning, self-paced book is designed to ease the reader into the language of medicine. It contains 10 units organized by topic and body system. The word-building system format presents and reinforces word parts and word building with frames. Active participation is required through reading, writing, answering questions, labeling, repetition, and immediate feedback. Updates to this edition include new frames, new dictionary exercises, new medical specialty photographs, new radiographic photographs, new lab testing photographs, new questions in the review exercises, and updated abbreviations. The accompanying CD-ROM provides reinforcement.
Assessment: This is a needed update to the 1998 edition due to the changes in medicine. It is a valuable teaching guide for all current and future healthcare professionals.

    Medical Terminology Not so Easy

    This book is poorly organized and very difficult to read. You have to cover up half the page because the answers are listed to the outside of each page. We used this book in school for one quarter and then switched to a much better book. I would recommend looking for another Medical Terminology book as this one is very useless.
